Full-Day Tour Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar & Topkapi Palace

Witness the classic sites of heritage and history that abound in Istanbul on your full-day tour. Visit architectural masterpieces, marvel at awe-inspiring, Byzantine-era tile-works, and see the imperial treasures of Ottoman sultans. You also experience the customs of trade-life at a bustling bazaar.

Your tour starts with a brief stop at the Hippodrome, once the sporting and social center of the Roman capital of Constantinople, and still home to a few remaining obelisks. You then continue to the Byzantine basilica, Hagia Sophia, where you’re sure to be dazzled by the 30 million gold tesserae (tiny mosaic tiles) and the great Calligraphic Panes that line the interior.

Put your haggling skills to test and find a bargain at the Grand Bazaar, or simply observe the trade of diamonds, perfume, food, and rugs, before moving on to the Sultan Ahmet-inspired masterpiece—The Blue Mosque. Admire the finely decorated Ottoman tiles and stained-glass windows on your way to the solemn Tomb of Sultan Ahmet.

After lunch, meander through the regal rooms of the Topkapi Palace, the residence of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries. See the imperial treasury and its collection of Chinese porcelain, costumes, and weaponry. Your tour is complete with a visit to the 16th-century Rustem Pasha Mosque, home to many of the finest Ottoman tile-works.

Istanbul is an amazing place to visit. We are an American family who just moved to Istanbul and we've loved getting to know the culture, people, and place.

Everything went perfect! from ground transportation, hotel accommodation, domestic flights and especially the tour itinerary arranged for us! Turkey is definitely worth to visit.

We had a full-day layover at Atatürk airport so we booked a day tour of Istanbul after reading the great reviews of Daily Istanbul Tours, and I am so glad we did!
